Do you have the flash turned off? Does the screen show a lightning bolt with a line through it? If so, press the button with the lightning bolt and watch the screen for a lightning bolt and an "a".

The left side of my pictures are blured.

If it's been like that since Day 1, I'd guess either an improperly assembled lens, or a misaligned CCD in the body. Hopefully it's a warranty fix. If it has recently started, it may be due to impact to lens or body. Fingers crossed for the warranty situation.
